Looks like a rad for a car, but a tad small.

Maybe a motorcycle actually. Hard to tell

It's a watercooling system out of a MAC. It's 7"x5.5" radiator.

I've decided it's impossible. One side will say money was wasted in one way and one side will say it was wasted in another. What can be safely concluded either way is that the best performance per dollar will come from spending as little as possible biggrin.gif

I need to stalk dwood and his pedestals. I considered replacing my window with the phobya g-changer extreme 9-fan rad because of reasons.

All sorts of external n stuff n things.

So to get the best performance for the price is not buying a GPU at all in the first place biggrin.gif
( 0/0 ~= infinity )


replacing the window with a rad might be problematic whenever you'd want to take of the side panel. (even with QDC might be annoying)

Exactly! Best price:performance is avoidance. I thought about that. Then I told myself I could mount it internally on a frame, but that seems like a small nightmare. Easier to plumb a freestanding A/C unit to the bottom of the case.

yup, no cards = no game playing = no performance loss. (and that rhyme)

either get a pedestal (which i'd love to see and eventually get) or just mount the Phobya rad externally as a separate unit and plumb it with QDC.

Right? THe idea of packing another 360 is appealing. I HAVE thought about mounting the PSU on the front and putting another 360 on the floor, but that seems complicated and not aesthetically pleasing.

I've actually considered moving the PSU to the front and putting a plate to cover it for the time being. But right now I don't have the tools needed to make the changes needed. Once I do though I will post pictures!

You guys are crazy, looking at all this rad stuff, I'm looking at how to get 8 nics in mine.

Have a use for 3d printing? Laser Cutting? Laser Scanning? 4/5 axis CNC Milling? Give me a shout! Want to figure out how to make something yourself? Still give me a shout!
